When was the last time you had a meaningful conversation with your family? No really, think about it. In our warp-speed lifestyle, unless we are intentional about it, days, weeks and even months can go by without ever really talking with our family and loved ones.
Food for Talk®, Bringing families together one conversation at a time is all about connecting loved ones around the family dinner table in a relaxed, fun, thought-provoking way. It’s not about the cooking, it’s about the connection around the dinner table!
I was fortunate. I grew up in a home that valued family meals. My fondest memories growing up are around our family dinner table with conversations about everything including religion, politics, culture, travel; no subject was off limits and everyone’s opinion was valued and welcomed.
When I had my own family I wanted to create that same environment with my own children and set out to be more intentional to make it happen. Voila! Food for Talk was created.
If it can work with my family, it can work with yours!

Most importantly, start family mealtime now! It is never too late or too early. Whatever ages your kids, you will find that with a little planning your family will soon be sharing and connecting at a deeper level with each passing meal. It won’t happen overnight, but you will find it is time well spent, and the best investment you can make with your loved ones!
